Jacqueline Redesign - Sketch
Hello everyone. It’s Eric. I’m back from medical leave. My second daughter came home from the hospital last Friday after her heart surgery. She’s sitting her next to me in the bouncy chair. She’s quite noisy, which is a good thing. She can now get a good head of steam up and bellow with the best of them.
This week’s hiatus preview is Jacqueline. She’s Vivienne’s best friend and aide-de-camp. As I was writing the script for Volumes 3 and 4, I wanted to make a change to her background. More of an elaboration really. There was quite a lot of intermarriage between the settlers of New France and the First Nations. I wanted to reflect that in this story with Jacqueline’s background and make her one-quarter Elakanois. Julie did an outstanding job of trying to keep her close enough to her previous look while giving her a slight native influence.
